I don't know how effective it is, but I've been using it for a couple months now. One thing I like about it: It never gets in the way or bugs me like AVG started to do.

in my opinion, my new ati 5870 ($380) is a better performer than my SLI 2x 8800GTX was. The price isn't close.

So Hammer, to answer your dilemma, I believe your "latter" option is indeed better in both performance and price.

nothing happened to the 295 ... it's going to be in my second pc. Probably overkill for a media center pc, but it does have hdmi output.

before the upgrade i was actually running a 295gtx and the new pc has the new ati card. 5870 i think. haven't compared them. the 5870 is a single gpu and runs very quiet and cool and performs very well. was only $380 i think too.

oh, and yes, i still have the pair of 8800 cards. you want them?

I got the pc version, however, I'm thinking i should have gotten the 360 version. This thing crashes (CTD) every 5 minutes. PCs -- love-em and hate-em.

I have it. Haven't gotten far into it yet. Just starting out. Obviously, it's good to know it's single player only.

Arma Lite isn't a bad thing in general. I'd also like a demo. I don't like that it's so under the radar. If it's trying to be like a true sequel to OFP, then Arma-lite is not good. If it's trying to be a new game and just using the flashpoint name, then it just depends if it's a good game or not. Ag...

they were selling it to anyone with a .edu address for $30 and I got my ultimate edition for free. I think they'd rather sell a zillion copies cheap than have it pirated.

Also, you could install the free win7 RC .... that counts as an upgrade too, but it sounds like your way is easier than that.

Borderlands

Anyone around here planning to get Borderlands? It comes out in a couple weeks. For those who don't know, it's essentially a FPS, skill-based (rather than stats based) RPG. Features coop as well.

New rick-roll

I know you're not supposed to tell people before you rick-roll them, however, this was too good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NN75im_us4k They've taken Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and mashed it up with Rick Astley's "Never gonna give you up." I think it actually makes both songs better! -B

L4D-2 Preorder

Anyone here want to go in with me on the L4D-2 preorder? They are selling the 4-pack for $135 ($33.75 ea rather than $45) which is a pretty good savings.

Let me know and we'll arrange finances.
